A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain name and you've most likely seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. As an illustration, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students on top of the main school site. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the websites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

When you use shared website hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with a few mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in a single spot together with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their administration easier. Whatever the plan that you choose, you're going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. You'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we have not limited the number of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain name inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unrestricted amount of subdomains for any of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It takes a couple of mouse clicks to set up a new subdomain and during the process you'll be able to add custom error pages for it, choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you will be able to see and manage them with ease. Via fast access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files within the File Manager area or view logs, visitor statistics and other information about any of your subdomains.
